It's the Devonport Santa Parade this weekend and my oldest daughter, Madeleine, is going to be part of her school float. The theme is "Literacy Garden". They planted a wonderful garden at the school earlier this year that the children can go and sit in to read at lunchtime. They have been asked to dress up as their favourite book character and Madeleine asked for a Madeline costume. I really hope its not too hot on the day or she will boil in the felt jacket!
